Here’s the opening paragraph from a recent article regarding the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) project, http://www.realclearscience.com/blog/2013/09/a-bold-prediction-et-will-call-in-next-25-years.html). “Admit it, the notion that we are alone amongst the stars – all 10,000 billion billion of them – is just a little depressing. Whether we concede it or not, humanity longs for its cosmic significant other.”
Christians admit nothing of the kind, because by grace we personally have come to know the “cosmic significant other,” although I would prefer to use a capital O – or call Him by His name, Yahweh, the Creator of the earth, the stars and everything else, aka the God and Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Sometimes we forget how blessed we are to know God, and then along comes blogger Ross Pomeroy, author of the sentence I quoted in the first paragraph, to remind us that knowing we are not alone is precious indeed. We should pray for Ross (Don’t worry about the address; God knows where he is.) And we should do what we can to give people a glimpse of the joy of our relationship with God.
